From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.7-10 i686)

Description of problem:
I don't know how, but apache-1.3.20-16 appears twice in the output
of 'rpm -q -a | grep apache'.  'rpm --rebuilddb' doesn't help.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Get my rpm database files
2.Try 'rpm -e apache-1.3.20-16'
3.You can try 'rpm -e apache', same thing.

Actual Results:  error: "apache-1.3.20-16" specifies multiple packages

Expected Results:  It should have removed apache without printing any message.

Additional info:

It's hard to say how the rpm database got messed up this way.

RPM version 4.0.3

rpm --force -e apache
error: "apache" specifies multiple packages

Add --allmatches to remove both packages, then reinstall
the apache package you want.
